The adage “charity begins at home” is a valid one. Children learn by example. If parents expose their children to generosity, their kids are more likely to be generous as a result. Those who give to others instill a charitable spirit in their children, allowing them to develop charitable tendencies as they develop into adults. It becomes an integral part of their lives. A great way to help children get in the mindset of giving back is to allow them to make a gift in honor or memory of someone they love.
Through tributes, the Prevent Cancer Foundation helps individuals fight back against a disease that has affected the lives of so many loved ones. The Prevent Cancer Foundation is saving lives through cancer prevention and early detection. Tribute gifts help us to fulfill our vision to “Stop Cancer Before It Starts!”
Every penny, every nickel, and every dollar counts! Tribute gifts, large and small, have helped raise more than $1 million dollars over the last ten years for cancer prevention and early detection research and programming. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, allowing your child to make a tribute gift in honor or memory of a loved one shows them that they can give back and make a difference!
